“Stella, Stella!”… is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the title A Streetcar Named Desire. Rest assured that André Previn’s operatic adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ famous play will leave you with so much more. Set in New Orleans in the late 1940’s, A Streetcar Named Desire spins a tightening web around three classic characters: Blanche DuBois, a troubled former school teacher, her sister, Stella, and Stella’s husband, Stanley. When Blanche leaves her home in a small Mississippi town to move in with the couple, her insecurity, indiscrete sexual behavior, drinking, and the terror of losing her fading Southern belle beauty, creates a cataclysmic scenario that threatens to destroy everyone in its path. Filled with soaring melodies and an orchestral score that puts you right in the middle of a hot New Orleans Summer, A Streetcar Named Desire is a contemporary verismo masterpiece.
